Hi,

After three months with the help of my wife and a friend part of the track bed of the Rhydypenau Garden Railway has been replaced. The part of the garden where the track bed had deteriorated is always damp and does not get direct sun light. After many years the mineral felt covered plywood had delaminated. Rather than replace the track bed with a similar construction wooden batons were used.

Take care Tony.
